[art] The Child makes Christmas cards
These were on some of the_child‘s gifts to various family members. I adore them.
My card, accompanying a framed photo she’d taken, developed, and pulled an archival print of; in my case an extreme closeup of a car tire
Mother of the Child’s card, accompanying a handmade beaten and cut copper bracelet
My sister’s card, accompanying a framed photo she’d taken, developed, and pulled an archival print of
Lisa Costello‘s card, accompany a very nice scarf
Dad’s card, with a handmade wooden puzzle
The Niece’s card, with a very nice Cross fountain pen she had coveted
My (step)mother’s card, with a handcrafted beaten copper bowl the_child had made herself
tillyjane‘s card, with an illustrated Chinese cookbook and a request for lessons in Chinese cookery
There has been discussion of her opening a card shop on Etsy. I am so proud of her.
